Stop #globalwarming,#climatechange – Miami-Dade has tens of thousands of septic tanks, and a new report reveals most are already malfunctioning — the smelly and unhealthy evidence of which often ends up in people’s yards and homes. It’s a billion-dollar problem that climate change is making worse.
As sea level rise encroaches on South Florida, the Miami-Dade County study shows that thousands more residents may be at risk — and soon. By 2040, 64 percent of county septic tanks (more than 67,000) could have issues every year, affecting not only the people who rely on them for sewage treatment, but the region’s water supply and the health of anyone who wades through floodwaters.
“That’s a huge deal for a developed country in 2019 to have half of the septic tanks not functioning for part of the year,” said Miami Waterkeeper Executive Director Rachel Silverstein. “That is not acceptable.”
BWN Says: This is just the beginning. The cost is not $3 billion, the cost is much higher as it shows that Global Warming is really taking a toll on Miami. This will start happening ALL OVER THE WORLD. This is why we HAVE TO wake up and start doing something about it instead of just talking or debating whether it is real or not. If you can’t tell by now that the earth is changing, you must need some serious help.
Why not write to your favorite billionaire and ask them to have their companies stop polluting, to pay people to stop cutting down the rain forests (Pinning down exact numbers is nearly impossible, but most experts agree that we are losing upwards of 80,000 acres of tropical rainforest daily) or ask them to help with with money for education and money for solutions to help us stop this destruction by human beings. Nature can not keep up with this daily deluge of chemicals put in its air and land, plastic in its oceans, killing of native species, and clearing of land for construction of totally unnecessary things, like a 30,000 sq ft mansion for 2 people. Or maybe just tell them what you think of all of it. At the bottom of the page is a place to get their real home addresses that WILL get to THEM, not their ‘people’. Thank you for reading this. We ALL need to help save our planet!
